If you are fed up with the traditional turkey after Christmas, this simple recipe gives you the perfect snack to enjoy with a drink while helping you get rid of any leftover turkey mince in the fridge.
Ingredients 200g turkey mince
1 tbsp onion, finely chopped
1tsp dried oregano
1tsp chopped parsley
1/2 tsp ground pepper
A bag of round dumpling wrappers (or you can make the wrappers yourself)
1/2 cup of water
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp cooking oil
Put the turkey mince in a bowl. Add onion, oregano parsley, pepper and salt. Mix well.
Beat the egg in a small bowl to use as egg wash.
Pick up a wrapper in your hand. If you are making the wrappers yourself, notice that the pan-fried dumplings taste better with thin wrappers. Put a spoon of the turkey mix in the middle.
Spread the egg wash around the edge to make the wrapper sticky and fold it in half, press to seal.
Pinch the edge of the wrapper and make a fold. Create identical folds along the edge in the same direction.
Heat up the pan and add the cooking oil. Once the oil is hot enough, place the dumplings in and let them sear for 1 minutes until the dumplings turn golden brown. Flip the dumplings and do the same. Quickly add water and cover the pan with a lid. Let the dumplings steam for another 3-4 minutes. Uncover the lid and let any extra water evaporate.
Transfer them to a plate. This dish is best served hot with chilli sauce or soy sauce.
